Se Alquila ESTADO
SE ALQUILA was born as an alternative to the dominant cultural and defends a model of social management and participation in culture, working on current issues, analyzing the roles and daily habits of the community, inviting to action and reflection on specific topics of interest general.
As a sign of identity, SeAlquila (created by the cultural asociations ENTREsijos and Lacosacultural) occurs in public and private abandoned or underused spaces. They create ephemeral cultural events and give diffusion and visibility to the contemporary artistic creation. This kind of "squat" events, temporary and peaceful, it is a response to the need to reclaim the use of the multitude of spaces and properties, whether public or private, are abandoned, unused or underused to become "refuges creativity ", places of production, learning, reflection and enjoyment, also showing its exhibition and trade possibilities.
